El-Rufai Expresses Grief Over Killings In Jema’a, Birnin Gwari



THE Kaduna State Government has condemned the  killings in the Southern parts of the state last Wednesday, where no fewer than 13 people lost their lives while several others were severely injured.

While expressing its sympathy to the victims, the government said a series of comprehensive measures are being designed to tackle the problem and secure sustainable peace across the state.

Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to Governor Nasir El-Rufai, Samuel Aruwan disclosed this in a statement issued in Kaduna. Unknown gunmen had in the early hours of Wednesday killed 13 persons in Katsak and Ungwan Danborno villages of Jema’a and Birnin Gwari local government areas respectively.

The gunmen also injured about 15 persons who are presently receiving medical attention. The statement from Aruwan said governor El-Rufai received the news with sadness and grief and restated his determination to work with the security agencies and the judiciary to end the epidemic of killings and the impunity that feeds it.

“The government is working to contain the killings and criminal acts menacing Giwa, Birnin Gwari, Kaura, Sanga, Jema’a and Zangon Kataf local government areas.

“We have briefed President Buhari on the security challenges and he is supportive of the measures being designed to address them. We pray Almighty God to grant the deceased eternal rest. Our hearts go to the injured and the families of the bereaved.”
